True, theres some guys on here though that spec a special GM puller for our trucks and say that NOTHING else works so i wanted to make sure we are all on the same page that the cheapo puller available at every auto parts store everywhere works just fine.
YES, it HAS to be a GM puller/presser like the one you pictured. That is what they "loaned" me. Actually not a loan, I paid for it and was refunded when I returned it within 24 hours,
or if I did not return it in time, I then owned it.
It is actually a clever little tool, but I was not able to use it until I had the pump off. Likewise I was unable to get it to work to press the pulley on unless the pump was off the truck.
I did find a little trick that worked for me. When reinstalling the pump I "Hung" it on the center bolt in the front. Then I installed the two side bolts and that lined up the other two front bolts perfectly.
Prior to installing the side bolts no matter how i wiggled and jiggled I could not for the life of me get either of the other front bolts to start.
Also, for the uninitiated, start both the lines on the pump before installing it. leave them loose but with the threads started.
